FPW Category Thumbnails
[resolved] FPW Category Thumbnails deletes the 'featured image' field on post-edit.php (2 posts)

    I tried this plugin on a test installation.

    Once I had activated it, I tried out the configurations. One of them replaces every already-assigned featured image with a category image instead. I did not like that effect, and wanted to re-feature my original choices. I switched it off-- or so I thought.

    But I found that was no longer able to assign featured images to posts that I edited or made new. The field was no longer available on post-new.php. It does not show up as in the screen options at the top of the page, either.

    I deactivated the plugin, but the featured image field still did not show up. I had to reinstall wordpress.

    It is highly improbable and nearly impossible for my plugin to have such a deadly effect on your installation. The only change to your database is adding a key / value pair to post_meta file for a post / page in question. Even if these values were incorrect that wouldn't bring your system to its knees. Beside of deactivating my plugin did you try the standard debug procedure of deactivating all plugins and test it with a default theme then activating plugins one by one and testing in between activations? If not that would be really hard to determine what plugin or theme caused you so much grief.
